"If this occurs, the first thing you should do is make sure you visit your local tax office, the IRS office, to make sure they don't need any more information from you. Also contact the local authorities, let us know what has occurred, provide us the phone numbers so we can document this into our system. It may not immediately lead to an arrest, but we may be able to identify a certain pattern or a phone number which may eventually be to suspect information," said Crosby.
"Yeah, we have been getting more calls it seems like this year. So, I don't know if they are working the system more with the tax changes and all that with refunds being delayed somewhat. So they might be trying to get it quicker, get their money quicker, but we have seen more calls from people saying the IRS is calling me and says i'm back taxes and i'm late and this and that and we tell them no, the IRS is never going to call," said Ferrick.
